Dave successfully worked toward the life he wanted and was able to do it by facilitating 1031 exchanges.

Dave Foster joins John Carney today in The Real Estate Locker Room to explain how to increase your wealth with 1031 exchanges.

Key Points:

  1. 1031 Exchange: In the statue of the IRS tax code, there are provisions that allow you to sell/purchase investment real estate, use a QI, and indefinitely defer paying tax on capital game. Investors may use that tax deferment to purchase more real estate and increase their wealth.
  2. Not limited to “buy and hold”. You may use the 1031 Exchange for any kind of real estate as long as it is for investment.
  3. 1031’s are not easy. Your QI is your investment guru.
  4. Timing requirements: You only have 45 days to identify a new property after the sale of the existing property. Your QI needs to be in place before the sale of the initial property.
  5. Advice to consider: Research your market. Focus on the big picture. Start early and be strategic. Ready, fire, aim does not work. Work with an expert.
